Express your creativity in a wonderful manner with Alpana. Mostly created by womenfolk during Saraswati Puja or Vasant Panchami, this form of art is commonly practiced in the eastern parts of the country like West Bengal, Assam, etc. Beautiful motifs are created in front of the idol and also during the hate khori ritual with the help of a small piece of cloth or paper which contains diluted rice paste, and hence, the colour white.
Being one of the oldest forms of Indian Folk Art, the Alpana designs are passed on from generation to generation, and usually include sun, owl, fish, lotus, sindoor box, and the rest. After being drawn on wood, earthen floors and/or terracotta, the designs are then left to be dried. Once dried, these bring much more charm to the creation.
